We’re often asked “It’s too good to be true. How can WHYPAY? be free?” Read on – there really isn’t a catch.
Under Ofcom regulations, calls to 03 numbers are included in bundled minutes for UK callers (from landline and mobile phones), so if you have bundled minutes available at the time you dial into a WHYPAY? conference call, your call won’t cost you a penny.
If you don’t have any bundled minutes, or exceed your bundle allowance, you’ll only be charged by your network operator at your standard geographic call rate – the same as for calls to 01 or 02 numbers.
If you need further reassurances, please do take a look at the Trustpilot reviews from our customers or call us on 0333 443 3366.
In case you’re wondering how we can provide a truly free service, the answer is that it is supported by the fraction of a penny per minute rebate that we receive from BT for calls made to our 03 dial-in number.
This provides a wafer-thin margin allowing us to provide WHYPAY? at no cost to you. We do not charge to use the service or any of its extra features.
This applies to calls from any type of UK line, including mobiles, landlines and payphones. Other “free” conference services (free in the sense that they don’t also charge to host the conference call) are operated on special rate 084 numbers. These are generally excluded from bundled minutes and often charged at a much higher rate.
Don’t pay £8.18 for your next conference call.
We take the average access charges of the main UK network operators and the average charges for dial-in access to seven leading conferencing services. These are analysed to give the total average per-minute rates from UK landlines and mobiles which we use to calculate how much our callers are saving. Average savings for calls for December 2018 were £8.18 from mobiles and £4.81 from landlines.
We all like to give back. This is why we’re proud to support the Wonderful Organisation with staff seconded from WHYPAY? who provide charity administration and support to the fundraising platform. Wonderful allows individuals to create charity fundraising pages, but unlike other sites, it uniquely guarantees that 100% of donations and every penny of Gift Aid reaches the charities which fundraisers are supporting, making no deductions whatsoever to meet its own costs. At wonderful.org, costs are covered by corporate sponsors. If you’re taking part in a run, swim, cycle ride, cake bake, or any other fundraising event, please visit wonderful.org first.
